Unformatted text preview: ME 375 Homework 2 : Solution October 6, 2009 Problem 1 Derive the equation of motion for the system shown, state any assumptions and draw the free body diagrams. Figure 1: Problem 1 1 Solution: The free body diagram is as follows: Figure 2: Problem 1FBD Assumptions: The spring is massless and acts as an ideal spring The cord only moves vertical The two disks are both fixed together and only rotate around one point O Assume no slipping Explanation of symbols used: x : displacement of static equilibrium for the mass m y : displacement of static equilibrium for the spring : the angular displacement of the disk F s : force F k : spring force Solution: First, we know that the disk has an angular position . We can correlate this 2 to x and y as follows: x = R y = 4 R We have the following equations: For the mass m: m x = F s (1) For the disk J: J = RF s + 4 RF k (2) F k = ky (3) We also know the correlation between and x...
